He calls himself the Neighborhood Nut

I call him the Neighborhood Historian and a dear man!

This was a difficult one! Efraim Shlain provided a 45 minute interview – all gems! Editig to 3:00-3:30 minutes was impossible. I sacrificed a lot and left it at about 6:00.

I first toured Bet Hakerem with Efraim Shlain fifteen years ago – our daughters studied together in the first years of school. I recently did it again, this time with a camera. What can I tell you? True joy! I hope this multimedia presentation can convey Efraim’s passion and dedication!

g10 under extremely difficult lighting conditions

thoughts in an image

very challenging lighting conditions at my daughter’s ballet show last night. iso 800 and 1600 with a lot of noise, quickly and continuously changing lights, a lot of fast subject motion and slow shutter speeds and lots of burnt highlights. But, as displayed above, not all is lost and even in these conditions the g10 can indeed produce image that i think are visually interesting and draw the viewer in.

afterthought: i was exposing with center weighted average and -2/3 exposure compensation, half-clicking on highlighted areas, recomposing then releasing shutter … still found it difficult for g10 to cope with highlights.

it’s almost there

and for most part of the week i fantasized that it was!

a compact rangefinder style digital camera with almost 15M pixels that shoots incredible raw images! the canon g10!

michael reichman wrote about ited taylor wrote about it, its received the most clicks of all cameras on dpreview in the last five days!

it’s almost there … almost a 390 gram replacement for my 10 kilogram camera bag … almost … except for the noise above iso200. what a shame! i truely would sell off my whole canon system for a really good ‘compact’. i’m just beginning to cook my next documentary project and a small, unnoticed, camera would be perfect for shy subjects – for getting up close without a huge camera between myself and the subjects. but, and it’s a big ‘but’, i will absolutely need excellent performance in high iso.

so my dear 5d, our love-hate relationship continues! but maybe only until the next one.

monochrome resolution

i’ve made a resolution – monochrome only until january 1st!

i’ve even discovered the 5d has a monochrome mode hidden in it’s menus (raw files still contain all color data). i want to see monochrome, think black and white and chimp in b&w. so much more character!
